Anvil Beach (WA 441) lies immediately to the west and is a curving 1 km long beach that lies in lee of beachrock reef, with a 200 m wide central gap (Fig. 4.104). Waves break heavily on the reef and pass through the gap to break again inside the ‘lagoon’, which is 300 m wide in the centre. A large permanent rip drain out from the centre of the beach and through the gap while a second beachrock reef also parallels the central shoreline of the beach. The beach is backed by well vegetated 20-30 m high bluffs in the east grading to a lower foredune in the west. Massive vegetated transgressive dunes then extend 3 km northeast to the shores of Wilson Inlet. The same 4 WD track terminates above the eastern bluffs. A 200 m long calcarenite headland separates beach WA 441 from WA 442.
